Nevskiy Prospekt

A stroll along Nevskiy prospekt is a journey through time, from tsarist-era splendours to the cafés and chic boutiques of modern-day St Petersburg. Immortalised in Russian literature, this 4.5-km (3-mile) stretch has been the hub of the city’s social life since the 18th century. If, in Europe, all roads lead to Rome, then in St Petersburg they converge on Nevskiy. Home to numerous fine churches and monuments, this is an ideal starting point for an exploration of the city. Many of St Petersburg’s most famous sights, such as the unforgettable Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan, are just a short walk away.www.nevsky-prospekt.com
